Urge Lawmakers in Louisiana to Support Hemp!
Like 46 other states, Louisiana has established a pilot program for growing and processing hemp. Louisiana is currently developing regulations for the pilot program, including for how licenses will be issued.
The Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco has stated that food and dietary supplements that contain hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) may not be sold until the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approves CBD as a food additive.
We ask for your help in urging your legislators to co-sponsor and/or support legislation permitting hemp-derived CBD to be marketed and sold as a food or dietary supplement.
If you are a Louisiana resident or business owner, please use our portal to send an email to your state legislators to support legislation to permit the retail sale of hemp-derived CBD in Louisiana.
Our portal makes this super easy, with your legislators already identified and an editable message prepared. Just type in your zip code and the appropriate email or petition will appear. Then, click the “submit” button so that your state legislators will learn of your support!
Even if you are not from Louisiana, you can help us build our Hemp Supporter army there. Please spread the word by sharing this webpage with your friends, colleagues, customers, and social media contacts in Louisiana.
If you are aware of or have an important update about other Louisiana-specific efforts, please contact us at email@example.com.
